Posted On Tuesday May 28, 2019


Residential / Industrial / Commercial Users 

Please be advised that the Town of New Tecumseth in conjunction with Corix Water Services Inc. will begin swabbing the Alliston Water Distribution System (cleaning the water mains) between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. daily commencing June 3, 2019.  This process will take approximately four (4) weeksto complete.   Anticipated date of completion is June 28, 2019

Town staff will notify you of the swabbing process at least 24 hours before it is to occur in your immediate area.  During this time, DO NOT use your water for any purpose (i.e. cooking, laundry, dishwasher, flushing toilets, outside taps, etc.).  Due to the nature of the swabbing process, your immediate area may be impacted more than once.  Noise is an unfortunate side effect of this activity and every effort will be made to minimize noise during the work activity.

We recommend that services with private hydrants have their hydrants flushed following the swabbing process. Thank you for your patience and co-operation. We regret any inconvenience you may experience as a result of this process.
